I run through foams a LOT faster than I run through off-road wheels/tires so I'm wondering what you do when you are done with your foam wheels (mostly wheel, since the foam is worn down).

I have a growing stockpile of wheels... they are pretty inexpensive so I can't imagine it makes sense to try to reuse them. But I hate to waste the wheels if someone could make use
of them.

when I used to race 18R, I'd cut black ABS plastic and install custom drift tires:

Are the wheels ever actually good-enough quality and not scratched up too much to justify reusing them?
Check out "Fyrstormer's Garage" in the General RC forum.

Fair point. Most of the wheels are pretty banged up.

It just seems like a lot of plastic to waste... but perhaps putting them in the recycle bin is ok.
